This page was inspired by a series of videos by Raeart on Youtube. They are called The Shaytards Painting so Caleb refers to these guys as Shaytards - as in, "Mom, would you like to draw and paint some Shaytards with me?" I tried to explain that Shaytards is probably the name of the family that was going to receive the finished painting but he remains unconvinced.
It was really fun drawing these faces all together in a bunch like that - even added a mini dinosaur in there. Quote is from Lemony Snicket.
I know that I took a preliminary picture of both of our "Shaytards" when they were still pencil drawings but I seem to have misplaced it, so here is a picture with the first layer of paint.
Added Neocolor for shading and fun dots from the handy dandy Sharpie paint pen. I had some issues with the black ink though - I can't seem to find a pen that puts down BLACK ink and can write over the Neocolor crayons. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Caleb is still working on his "Shaytard" - like most 11 year old boys he has more stamina for video games than he does for painting.
Fun how the finished page looks like some weird trophy or statuary!
